HPLC, GC, Spectroscopy & Dissolution Instrument PQ and Service
UVISON Technologies has been involved in the validation of analytical instrumentation since 1996.
The key factor in the successful PQ of analytical instrumentation is the use of qualification methods which are traceable to nationally recognised standards. Using an independent PQ provider eliminates the cost of training and the requirement for expensive calibration reference standards and equipment. All the standard modules of an chromatography system are covered by the UVISON Technologies independent PQ, including, detectors, solvent delivery systems, sample injectors, data systems, integrators and chart recorders and many more.
Nationally Traceable Liquid Standards
You can perform your own PQ on any type of chromatography detector using nationally traceable liquid standards in full compliance with GLP, FDA ISO 9000 GMP and other regulatory requirements. The standards can be used to check wavelength accuracy and absorbance linearity, traceable back to NPL the UK standard. Liquid standards cover UV/Vis, diode array, refractive index and fluorescence detectors.
Regulatory Perspective on PQ
Traceability of standards, ISO-9000- clause 4.11:
"...the user shall identify, calibrate and adjust all inspection, measuring and test equipment and devices that can affect product quality at prescribed intervals, or prior to use, against certified equipment having a known valid relationship to nationally recognised standards"
Use of an independent approved service agent:
"It is likely that the planned non-method specific checks will most conveniently be carried out by the manufacturer (or approved Service Agent) immediately after the routine service."
This is reinforced by the UK Organisation of Pharmaceutical Analysts, the PASG, who in their paper (Pharm. Tech (Europe), p40-46) state.
Roles and responsibilities of an independent approved service agent:
- The ability to PQ all manufacturers' instruments.
- Full, proven and detailed operational procedures.
- Nationally traceable calibrators and standards
- Formal certificates of successful PQ - produced on-site (as shown below).
- Traceably trained PQ engineers.
- Independence of OEM's and user company.
Whose HPLC, GC, Spectroscopy & Dissolution instruments can we service?
We provide service work for any all of the manufacturer's instrumentation, using service engineers who have been either factory trained with the original manufacturer (OEM), or traceably trained by a qualified engineer. The following brands/manufacturers of instrumentation are supported by UVISON Technologies Ltd:-
ABI, Kratos, Severn, Agilent, Beckman, Gilson, Hewlett Packard, Isco, Rainin, Foxy, Jasco, Jones, Kontron, Merck Hitachi, Perkin Elmer, Rheodyne, Shimadzu, Spectra Physics/LDC/TSP,Varian, Waters, Finnigan,Thermo Quest, Waters, Micromass
The financial benefits?
We charge considerably less for service work, and normally use spares from the same source as those supplied by the OEM. If your laboratory contains a mixed assortment of chromatography instruments, we can offer considerable financial savings, plus the convenience of having all your routine preventative service work done at the same time.
